Take a Personal Tour

The best way to evaluate and appreciate Almaden Country Day School is to visit for an on-campus tour.

Tours offer families not only a chance to see our campus but also opportunities to learn more about the history and philosophy of ACDS, our balanced approach to education, and how your child will benefit from the ACDS experience. To schedule an on-campus tour, please complete the Online Inquiry Form. The Inquiry Form will offer you a chance to register for a tour as well as a virtual group chat or a call during admissions office hours. Tours are scheduled to accommodate groups and usually last about an hour.

To set up an on-campus tour or conversation

Please fill out the Online Inquiry Form or call our Admissions Office at (408) 997-0424.
